Revised on October 20, 2022

1. Introduction

1A. Entry of Agreement
1AA. By using our site (the "site", the "platform", the "services", "us", "we", "our", "Ortingo"), whether or not you ("you", "your") are registered as a user, and whether or not you are authenticated (signed in) as a registered user, you are automatically and legally protected by, subject to, and consented to this privacy policy (the "policy", the "agreement"), as this agreement, is, with accordance to, and depending on all pertaining and applicable local, city, county, state, provincial, and/or federal law(s) and/or regulation(s) pertaining to the jurisdiction of the usage of our site and/or your legal residence, a legally binding agreement.

2. Your Data, Security & Privacy

2A. How We Protect Your Data
2AA. Your data, including files, data in our database, and other locations throughout our platform are safe against unauthorized access from those who have any malicious intention to misuse your personal data, including your files and other data pertaining to your account on our platform. Any notes located in your private folder, and pertaining media data, can only be accessed by you. Any posts located in your contact-only folder, and pertaining media data, can only be accessed by those you declare as contacts, through accepted contact requests, and you.
2AB. Your password, and verification codes are stored in our database using a secure hash algorithm (SHA), which makes them virtually impossible to reveal, even with their unauthorized possession. As an account holder and user on our platform, you have the voluntary option of enabling two-step verification on your account, virtually preventing the unauthorized access of your account, regardless of the unauthorized possession of your password. Your files are encrypted while in transmission (when viewing and uploading files), using 256-bit end-to-end SSL encryption. Using the same technology, we also encrypt your other data in transmission, such as account credentials (when signing in and signing up), and debit and/or credit card data.
2B. How We Collect & Use Your Data
2BA. As a privacy-first platform, we genuinely respect your privacy, and refrain from using third-party traffic analytics services, and developed our proprietary traffic data collector. The data we collect through your usage of our platform, is first-party traffic data (data belonging and shown only to us), of which the only data points collected, precisely, are your: IP address, referrer, page visited, date and time, user agent (identifies your browser, operating system and device, and lets us differentiate your visits from those of bots and automated users, such as web crawlers), possible language preference(s) set in your browser, and, your session ID (if you're signed in). As such data is first-party data, meaning only we possess and utilize that data for analytical purposes, never sell any such data to third parties, whether or not they are affiliated with us.
2C. Account Deletion
2CA. For whatever reason you decide to delete your account, you're welcome to do so, by going to the Settings page from the top-right navigation menu, then to the Delete your account option on the menu of that page, then, entering your password after carefully reviewing the prompt, and finally submitting the form. After that's done, your entire account and its pertaining data will be immediately and permanently deleted from our servers, and our database. However, the only record we keep in our database is your username, for two sole reasons: (i) your security and privacy, and (ii) data analytics: we monitor the difference of how many of our users are active, registered and non-active, and former, to provide current and future users a better experience, whenever necessary.

3. Cookie Policy

3A. How & Why We Use Cookies
3AA. Strictly minimal and vital cookies are created by our platform, which are stored in your browser (as a client, and not on our servers). One is reserved for the sole purpose of storing your session, which identifies your account upon successful authentication. Another, is for remembering you accepting our cookie notice, so you don't have to reaccept the notice each time you visit our platform. On occasion, we may use additional cookies for interactive elements (i.e. offers and promotions). Our cookies never track you, in any way. As you may notice, we do use a third party, to be able to process transactions for products and services that require payment. Any cookies from third parties may or may not track you, by which you will consent to and be subject to their policies.
